Gentle Low Force Chiropractic Adjustments using an Activator

Gentle low force chiropractic adjustments using the Activator Method Chiropractic Technique®, are standard procedure in my office.  This diagnostic tool and treatment system can treat:

  • many types of back pain
  • neck pain
  • misalignments in the skull
  • spinal column
  • tailbone
  • pubic bones
  • pelvis
  • as well as ribs, shoulders, clavicle, knees, ankle and feet.

Other Uses of Low Force Chiropractic

Low force chiropractic is also used successfully for headaches; including chronic and  for relief of some types of migraine headaches. In my experience, migraine headaches are usually also be related to food intolerances and weather conditions. Until these are treated, the migraine will keep coming back.  However, I also test migraine headache patients for any food or weather related allergies and I  desensitize them using my  AllerCease™ technique.

There is never any trauma to a bone using the Activator!

Low Force Chiropractic is perfect for those patients who have concerns about the typical chiropractic methods that use high force, (high velocity, low amplitude thrusts) and unilateral rotational techniques.   When I adjust using this technique, I use a device called the Activator.  With this device there is never any trauma, high velocity thrusting, or cracking of bones.

The Activator  is a small, hand-held instrument that delivers a gentle impulse force to the spine or bone being adjusted with the goal of restoring motion to the targeted spinal vertebra or joint.

How do I only adjust the bone that is out of place?

Before I adjust a patient, I use Contact Reflex Analysis (C.R.A.) to establish which bone is out of place and in which direction. In certain circumstances I will refer a patient to have an x-ray or MRI.  I have absolute certainty and confidence of exactly where I need to adjust and how best to do it, from head to toes.  I have been practicing this technique for over 40 years.

Especially suitable for patients with a low pain threshold!

Many people suffering from chronic pain syndromes are treated inappropriately with pharmaceutical methods.  Often, it turns out that the real issue is mechanical in nature.   A skilled C.R.A. analysis and precise low force chiropractic adjustment will often reduce pain quickly.  Often this takes the pressure off the inflamed and painful soft tissues faster than pharmaceutical drugs.  It also resolves the true underlying cause of the pain.

This technique is especially suitable for patients with:

  • low pain threshold
  • Fibromyalgia
  • With acute musculoskeletal discomfort
  • Herniated discs
  • Sciatica
  • tennis elbow
  • Golfers elbow
  • Carpal tunnel
  • T M J syndrome
  • Bursitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Neuritis
  • Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Migraine Headaches
  • Tension Headache
  • Rotator Cuff Syndrome

When I need a chiropractic adjustment myself, I always look for a Chiropractor skilled both in the use of an activator and device as well as Contact Reflex Analysis testing.
